Here is a concise and authoritative survey of the rich and complex arts of Japan, from the prehistoric period right up to the present, now with a new chapter on the latest developments and trends in Japanese art, including manga and anime, and discussion of world-famous artists, architects and photographers such as Nakaya Fujiko, Yayoi Kusama, Yoko Ono, Ando Tadao and Daido Moriyama.

Reviews

Covers the prehistoric period through Japan today and seeks to capture the essence of Japanese culture, which embraces balance, harmony, humor, and human imperfection. [Stanley-Baker] aims to communicate the sense of union between the art and the artist, as well as the ability of Japanese art and culture to absorb the ideas and influences of other cultures into its own.
